– Newborn Photography Q&A –
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK?
It is best to book just after your 16 week scan. Then I block out a couple of dates in my diary for two weeks either side of your due date.
As I have so many dates taken up by each newborn I can only offer a limited number of sessions per month. So as soon as you have decided you would like your newborn photos captured by Wings Photography, give me a call and we can schedule you in the diary.
HOW DOES IT WORK WHEN YOU DONT KNOW WHEN BABY WILL ARRIVE?
Babies as we all know come when they are ready. Only around 5% of babies come on that unit due date. Most first time babies arrives later, around 60% the week after the due date.
When you book in I put your due date in the diary, then I keep dates two weeks either side of your due date. As soon as your baby arrives you let me know and thats when you get your session date.
WHERE DO THE SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
All sessions take place in my purposely design studio, in Wingerworth Chesterfield.
The studio is attached to my home and is completely self-contained. It’s kept to a constant 26° to ensure that baby is kept nice and cosy. It may mean we get a little warm so do make sure you wear something comfortable.
HOW LONG DO THEY TAKE?
Sessions can take up to 4 hours with the average newborn session lasted around 2 1/2 hours. As each baby is different, we work with them you can’t rush a newborn!
I have tea and coffee available and a nice comfy sofa for you to relax on. I have had a few sleep deprived parents evening having a little nap.
- You’re relaxing week day studio session for your newborn sibling a new lasting up to 4 hours in my dedicated studio.
- A wide range of hats, headbands and blankets to choose from to make the session completely unique to you.
- An information guide to help you prepare for your session.
- A viewing of between 20 and 30 images from your newborn session that are beautifully and sympathetically retouched.
- 100% money back guarantee. I’m so confident that you will love your images at your viewing or I will refund your booking fee and delete your images.
WHEN DO I GET TO SEE THE PHOTOS?
Your photos are available to view, back in the studio, around two weeks after your newborn session. We will schedule a date at the end of your session.
CAN PARENTS AND SIBLINGS HAVE SOME PHOTOS WITH BABY?
Of course! I encourage it. You will never get this time back and having photos of you all as a family when baby is still still so tiny is so precious. It also helps siblings bond with the new baby.
I take photos of both mum and dad each alone with the baby and then together. Then we do sibling photos with the baby and then you all as a family. If you have siblings who are at school and you can’t take them out of school for the session then you are welcome to bring them for 15 minutes session on a Saturday morning.
WHAT IF MY BABY WONT SLEEP?
Don’t worry, I am an expert at getting babies to sleep. I’ve been doing this now for over 14 years. But while they are awake it’s nice to get some with babies eyes open to. All babies will sleep eventually I am and I’m very patient. So please don’t panic.
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING WITH ME?
I have all the blankets, hats and headbands at my studio for you to choose from. But you are welcome to bring any keepsake objects you would like photographing with your baby.
Once baby has arrived I supply you with a guide to help you prepare for your session. It tells you how to get you and your baby ready and what you need to do.
WHAT IS THE COST?
I require a booking fee of £75 this is payable on booking to secure your date in the diary and it’s non-refundable. This is then deducted from your products at your ordering session, so this means your session is totally free.
At no time are you obliged to purchase any images, however I’m so confident that you will love your images that you won’t leave empty-handed.
Product prices start from £375. Please ask to see the full price list.
